ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"..sweet and brilliant.."
KUVO 89.3 FM

"..favorite band...in the style of Django Reinhardt and Stéphane Grappelli..”
Fox News, 10.2007

"..delightful and charming music.."
Colorado Springs Independent

"...the band is ridiculously talented and instantly transports the crowd to the 30s.”
Denver Post, 05.2007


The music of Gypsy Swing Revue is the swinging jazz of the 30’s and 40’s - Gypsy Jazz. This unique musical style was brought to life by Django Reinhardt and Stéphane Grappelli during their domination of the Paris jazz scene in the 1930's. With instrumentation similar to Django's Quintet of the Hot Club of France (two acoustic gypsy guitars, violin, and upright bass), tight arrangements and impeccable performance, Gypsy Swing Revue recreates the elegant and energizing mood of war-era European Jazz.


This album was recorded 'live' in the studio, without any overdubs or edits. Notable tracks include two original compositions (Elliot Reed’s Zapala, and Farewell, by Art Gibson), one of the very few bolero-style tunes composed by Django Reinhardt (Troublant Bolero), the title track, a timeless standard by Irving Berlin (Puttin' On The Ritz), modern songs from the Gypsy Jazz repertoire (Jojo Swing, Number One), as well as a rare Russian swing song, contemporary with Django's early career, and never before recorded in United States (Unfortunate Rendezvous).

Puttin' On The Ritz
Superb renditions of classic swing tunes. If you love to dance (or just toe-tap) to jazz, this is a great disc to add to your collection.
